DENVILLE, NJ - The unofficial results of the 2019 Democrat and Republican primary election have been announced. At the local level, Republican Mayor Thomas Andes will face-off against Democrat Andrea Zeydelis. For Township Council, Republicans John Murphy, Angela Cote and Harry Fahrer will challenge Democrats Nathan Gould, James Putnam and Linda Humphries in November.
